Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol
The Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol provides an accurate GHG accounting methodology for GHG reduction projects that divert and anaerobically digest eligible organic waste and/or wastewater streams that otherwise would have gone to uncontrolled anaerobic storage, treatment and disposal systems such as solid waste landfills or on-site anaerobic wastewater treatment facilities. The protocol also addresses the co-digestion of eligible organic waste streams with livestock manure. This protocol was first adopted by the Reserve Board in October 2009.

The Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol is currently undergoing revision. The Reserve is beginning work on a programmatic update to the protocol to incorporate changes adopted in the recent revisions to the Organic Waste Composting and Livestock protocols.
